Research is important to us at BGU for its intrinsic as well as extrinsic value, and we fully support and encourage research among staff and students across the institution.

Research stimulates innovation in learning and teaching, informs our practices, pushes back the boundaries of knowledge and changes lives. We hope the pages within this section will give you an insight into the research going on at BGU and answer many of your questions.

At BGU research activity is focussed around five cluster areas. The clusters provide a supportive environment to encourage research, broker collaborative research opportunities, house research students and provide a point of contact for knowledge exchange partners.

The research clusters are:

  • Children and Young People
  • Identity, Culture and Communication
  • Public Policy and Professional Practice in Education
  • Transitions in Higher Education
  • Wellbeing and Resilience
